Red Robin , when do I need to bring them inside?

wertach zone 7-B SCOctober 18, 2011

I'm trying Red Robins for a winter toms experiment. It is still 70's + during the day, sometimes dipping in to the high 40's at night.

They are about 6" tall now. Very healthy.

Would I be better off bringing them inside at night when it is going to be below 50? If I do bring them in at night I would have to put them back out at 6 AM when I leave for work, still cold, or leave them inside and they don't get the much needed direct sun.

They will grow slowly below 55 or so .If the frost hits them they are done for. Can you put them inside by a sunny window ? I have some Tiny Tim's in the window doing nicely.

Well, the weather Lady solved it yesterday morning. She predicted 30's for last night, so I moved them inside. It got down to 35.

I put them in my Dads old house, in the sunniest room for now. It stays above 50 and gets morning to midday sun. I am remodeling it and sweet thing liked that idea better than putting them in our kitchen.:) I won't have much sun in my sunniest room, the kitchen, until the leaves fall off of my oak trees.
